Four things we don't believe

What Clinton watches. What Obama doesn't know. Plus: Oprah Winfrey and Cheney's heart.

1. Hillary Clinton's let's-paint-ourselves-as-just-folks-while-also-making-a-play-for-the-elderly-vote claim that she likes to watch "Grey's Anatomy," "American Idol," "Dancing With the Stars" and HGTV home-makeover programs, but that her all-time favorite is "The Ed Sullivan Show." (The risk of telling the truth: Imagine what Republicans will make of Obama's endorsement of the R-rated HBO series "The Wire.")

2. Barack Obama's claim that he doesn't know what the word "Clintonian" means.

3. That the Clinton campaign thinks "it's great" that Oprah Winfrey is "participating in the process" by going on the road for Obama in Iowa.

4. That all it took was an electrical shock to give Dick Cheney a regular heartbeat.
